I know a lot of us have a hard time finding our foundation shade, but I have found two easy ways to show you how to find your foundation shade. MatchmyMakeup.com and Findation.com are two great websites that let you search to find your foundation shade. *Please note that this isn’t for first time foundation users. You must have tried or know your shade in one foundation before you can continue in the search for your shade.
I am loving these natural hair tips for the summer from LHDC-TV. She basically talks about letting your hair down and out for the summer, and that is what I have been doing myself. I have been wearing a wash and go all summer long. No wigs here…at least until the winter. With my hair, a wash and go is something super easy to do. Have you been trying new hair styles this summer? What have you been doing with your hair?
FTC: I received these products from Influenster.com and Herbal Essences. This is an honest review.
I am so glad I got the latest Influenster VoxBox with the Herbal Essences Naked Moisture Collection in the mail. It had been a while since I had gotten one. I can’t wait for the next one.
Have you ever wondered how to pineapple natural hair at night? Pineappling is where you put your hair up at night instead of retwisting it that night. It is an easy way to keep your hair lasting throughout the week without all of the work. Even though @blackonyx77 has long hair, you can do this on short hair too by making many mini pineapples at night. The other great thing about this hairstyle is that you can rock it out as well with a really cute scarf.
MissJazzy2Classy always has some really great YouTube beauty videos. Here she shows you how to lay your wig. I figured I would post this since people are always asking me.

Subscribe to her channel and check out all of the beauty goodness.
I love temporary hair color for natural hair because you can spray it in and then wash it out. I have been using some sprays that I recently got from the BSS and my local Sally Beauty Supply. The only problem I have found is that it sometimes gets hard and crusty, so I let it dry and then kind of knock the flakes before I go. You can also use hair chalk and mousse. This is the temporary hair color I use from Sally Beauty Supply. In MissKenK’s video, she shows you how to properly spray and chalk the hair. Enjoy! Photo from Sally Beauty Supply!
This is my favorite brand of temporary hair color!
Have you ever tried yoga for beauty? Yes the ancient practice of yoga is good for beauty! You heard me right. Yoga lengthens and tones the body. It makes you more flexible and helps purify the body. The best thing about yoga is that it is a stress reliever.

Murray’s Edgewax 100% Australian Beeswax is the affordable edge control solution for natural hair. I found it at Walmart for around $3. This is like the low-cost alternative to Hick’s Edges. I swear it works. I have like 4 category natural hair. I actually have two different textures, and it smooths down.
FTC: I used a voucher the company gave me to purchase the Studio Gear Total Clarification Exfoliating Pads. This is an honest review.
Are the Studio Gear Total Clarification Exfoliating Pads with Beta Hydroxy the fastest dark spot remover? Well they are the fastest I have ever used. I am so glad Studio Gear gave me a voucher to use. I can’t thank them enough. I was going to buy similar pads from Avon, but they were sold out. Thank God! Seriously. I have used numerous products to get rid of dark spots. These pads started working in a week. A WEEK?! You read that all the way right. I highly recommend them. Get it for $35 dollars.
I finally bought the As I Am Coconut Cowash. I know I am late to the party, but I love this stuff. It cleaned all of the gooky product I had left in my hair and left it incredible soft. I bought it for $9, but the website site says it is $8.99. I actually saw it at Sally’s for $6.99 though. Wherever you get it from, I guarantee that it is worth the price.
I was sent a concealer palette Rosewholesale.com and asked to review their website. The website has men and women’s clothes, a few plus size items, bags, shoes, and other accessories. The thing that I like the most about the Rosewholesale.com are the beauty products. I love websites with low priced beauty products. The whole website is super affordable, but I love that the beauty products are so affordable because I can buy tons of eyeshadow and concealer palettes, makeup tools, and more for less!
Have you ever received beauty samples, or boxed subscriptions that did not impressed you? Well, you’ll love eDivv.com! eDivv is an online swap service for those beauty samples you don’t want. The way eDivv works is their Divvy process, which is where users upload pictures of their products, then ‘quick divvy’, offer, and/or decline a variety of items. It’s sort of like EBay, except its all makeup!
Beyonce rocks the wet hair look at the Grammy’s. You may remember the drenched bob look from her Drunk in Love video. She brought it back when she performed the song with her husband Jay-z as they opened last night Grammy’s. I know that some people are on the fence about the look.
Has anybody tried the new way to curl your eyelashes? YouTube makeup guru Wayne Goss has a tutorial on a totally brilliant way to curl your lashes. You basically use gel eyeliner as an actual gel to hold your lashes in place all day. They give your lashes hold and color, so when you put mascara on… your lashes instantly pop!
I received this Crown Brush HD Set with Mirror and Tweezer from Ifabbo.com. I am so glad I got this set. This vegan friendly brush set comes in three cool colors, and is really small and portable. This would make the perfect travel or everyday set. It is also perfect for beginners.
I love that it is only $27.95, which makes it very affordable. The Crown Brush HD Set comes with a removable mirror, tweezers, and enough brushes to line your eyes, pat on some eyeshadows and blend then together, and put on some blush and powder. The bristles are soft, yet do a good job of smoothing things out. The contour brush is small and compact and perfect for my liquid concealer. It really is my favorite brush.
This set works with creams, powders, and liquids. I think it works best with powders and liquids. The contour brush might work with creams the best though. It really is a great buy!

I just have to share my natural hair journey with you. I can’t believe that this weekend marked one whole year without a relaxer. My last relaxer was on November, 15th 2012. Crazy to think about it. This is my second time going natural, and I am really committed to it. Transitioning to natural hair hasn’t been as hard as I thought it would be. To be quite honest, I had heard all of these horror stories. I thought I was going to have the hardest time combing my hair and taking care of it, but I haven’t. Praise the lord! Clearly I’m doing something right.
Nanacoco Lip Gloss is the best beauty supply store lip gloss. I had always heard good things about it from other beauty bloggers and saw lots of things about it on Twitter and Instagram. Everybody loved it. I mean they raved about the lip gloss. I tried to find it at some on the beauty supply stores near me, but I couldn’t find it until I randomly stumbled one 15 minutes from my house.
I recently received the Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter to review from iFabbo. It is a really thick body butter that is supposed to moisturize dry skin. It smells like pure honey because it is made from African Black Bees and Royal Jelly. I like putting it on after I get out of the shower when my skin is damp because it seals in the moisture. It costs $40 on HSN, but you can get it for $5 off if you use code iFabbo5.
